The Lead Funders Action Network invites funders interested in addressing, reducing and preventing lead exposures to learn, network and find solutions for an urgent, continuing issue. See the preliminary agenda.

Since its first convening in April 2018, the Lead Funders Action Network funder partners have leveraged each other’s resources and insights on projects including: an Equity Assessment of Lead Policies (The Joyce Foundation) ; a scan of legal strategies (The New York Community Trust) and a toolkit for financing lead remediation (The JPB Foundation). Learn more about the funder partners’ work in a blog post on the web page of partner Health and Environmental Funders Network.
